I globally travel 6-8 times per year as a professional. Thus, my opinions are based on a 30 year history of global travel and knowledge of accommodations. Only one place better in town, and that is the modern Palais Faraj, which is owned by the same influential Fes family. The father has the "ear" of the King and is very...

We could not have chosen a better Riad for our visit to Fes and would highly recommend staying here. Our hosts were incredibly friendly, helpful, good humoured and welcoming, and we left feeling as though we had made new friends and stayed in their home rather than at a hotel! The Riad itself is beautifully restored and furnished with carefully...

We stayed in the Topaz room during our three nights in Fes, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room: The Topaz room is beautifully furnished, quiet (on the first floor) and really comfortable. From the stained glass windows and gorgeous decorations, to the amazing smelling bath soaps and much-needed air-con, the space was perfect. We were given...

We stayed at the riad for 2 nights and definitely recommend it. We chose it because of the reviews we read on Trip Advisor and our stay there exceeded our expectations. It has everything you can look for: location, comfort, great food and service, nice view of the medina and lovely decor. The riad is very charming, the decor is...

We choose this Riad based on purely Tripadvisor reviews. The pictures looked really nice and the location seemed closed enough to the Medina yet not smack in the center of all the action. After making the booking via an online booking platform, I got an email from the Riad confirming the stay. We booked the "Diamond Room" which is the...

I stayed for four nights at Riad le Calife after spending a few grueling days in the desert. I was tired and needed to rest and have a good meal.

A friend told us about this riad and I am so glad we chose to stay here in Fes! The owners Yasmine and Alexandre were so welcoming. Yasmine suggested us to take a tour with Hassian, he took us on a 5+ hour tour of Fes during Ramadan! We learned so much, he was an amazing guide! We also took...
